Squeezer is 18/15 (400 hands),9% (3bet),60% cbet, 100% turn cbet (4 hands)

Fine to call 1 barrel, but fold on the turn?

The villain doesn't look too much out of order with the stats.

Is there a 3bet% vs early position open raiser? Possibly a tag reg and not squeezing too light.

The cbet% looks ok, if it was 95% then it's an easier flop call. Is it possible to find a fold to 60%?

We can't really improve on the turn so yes float one bet and give up. The villain isn't.

Hi carl,

I think it's fine, yes. Any reason to believe he might be lite in this spot? He's making a sizable 3b vs. your UTG open, so I would expect that to be legit. Floating 1 time isn't terrible, on the turn I think releasing to the 2nd barrel is good, we're not beating any hand anymore that makes sense for these actions.

Thanks for the comments.

No reason to dispute his strength here so happy with how I played.

A decent 3b vs my tight UTG range does shout strength.

Still happy to call flop bet though, but perhaps I can find a fold sometimes in these situations.
